Retention of registration classes Tradesman and Certifying

Consultation closes on 20 April 2018

The purpose of this consultation is to seek your views on the retention of the two registration classes-Tradesman and Certifying.

During 2015, the Board carried out a comprehensive review of the registration and licensing requirements and sought the feedback of the industry on a number of issues. One of the issues it sought feedback on was on the two registration classes.
In response to the question, "Should there be one or two classes of registration for qualified persons", the Board received 108 submissions. 51% of those submissions favoured one registration class and 49% favoured two.

Following that consultation, the Board decided to retain the two classes.

Why the Board is consulting again

The Board continues to receive extensive feedback from the industry about this issue from both those wanting to only have one class and those who wish to retain two. As a consequence, the Board would again like to hear the views of the industry.
